The 1/16 model kits are so awesome, but those Milestone 1/16 diecasts are the ultimate in every drag racer's collection. When I started seeing those come out, I said GOODBYE to the puny toy-like quality 1/24 scale.

And a special thank you for him to go out of the molding way and create Berstein's batmobile... in 1/16th!
